As a development tool, VSI GKS is a solid base for portable, device-independent applications that define and display graphical images, using a variety of graphics devices.

VSI GKS for OpenVMS is VSI’s implementation of the 1988 ISO 8805 standard GKS for Three Dimensions (GKS-3D) and the ISO 7942 standard GKS. VSI GKS conforms to level 2c of this standard, providing full output capabilities, including workstation-independent segment storage (level 2), and full synchronous and asynchronous input capabilities (level c).
